I have a beautiful large DeVoe painting (watercolor?) of a group of Asian women, some playing instruments. I would like to send you some photos of it. It has beautiful colors in it. I think the artist may be from Chicago, as this used to belong to my great aunt, who lived in Chicago for years. It was given to her sister, who my aunt thought was a friend and the daughter of the artist.
I have been able to feature quite a few Devoe paintings on the blog, but unfortunately I am no closer to finding out about the real M. Devoe than I was when I started.
In the meantime, enjoy the "Asian" Devoe painting, and let me know what you think of it.
